  1. Fascinating Game
    by wobbleboxx, Germany - Jul 5th 2014

    The game was really really fun to play trough. Although I encountered some gameplay and sound bugs along the way, the overall experience was great. I really enjoyed the story and the playtime is of a good length. A bit grindy if you want to cover everything, and full graphics even on my „old" mid 2010 iMac.

  2. Reasonable reimplementation of original
    by Daniel Power, United Kingdom - Apr 22nd 2014

    Bought it two weeks ago. Finished it twice - on 'normal' and 'classic' difficulties.

    Overall a little disappointed.

    On the plus side its a shiny new version of a game I loved way-back-when.

    On the downside theres not much more development in terms of story or new concepts. Sure there's some nice new aliens, but if anything there is less variety in terms of mission types. My base didn't get attacked by aliens for example. I know the extension has more stuff, but I feel that there should be more content in the base set.

    Also : The interface is a bit amateur. There are keyboard hotkeys for actions - but they're different for different soldiers! So for one guy pressing '4' will reload his weapon, but for another its '3'. WTF?
    The view is far too zoomed in. It is possible to zoom out, but every time you switch soldiers it moves in again. This is irritating.
    Many many instances of polygon overlapping, With soldiers shooting through walls and aliens walking through each other.
    The 'free aiming' needed for rockets and grenades is bloody frustrating and far to sensitive to mouse movement.

    And to top it all there are still glitches in the game - especially when your troops use flight. During the final mission my ace sniper got stuck in a pillar and I had to leave him behind while my troops marched on without him. Lame.

    That said, if you liked the original there IS enough here to keep you amused. Despite all my complaints I'm glad I played it. I just wish it had been redone with a bigger budget.

  3. Incredible Turned Based Game!!!
    by Gabriel388, Australia - Apr 20th 2014

    Incredible game. The graphics are just simply Amazing. Gameplay is also Amazing. Aliens are highly intelligent. The customisation options for your squad is so Cool. The different gear they can wear and use looks really great. The different locations where you fight the aliens are also very well done and designed. Also there are a variety of differerent missions to go on. One of the Best Visual Turned based games I have seen. I played the original XCom when it first came out on PC. This was an Incredibly Amazing Improvement.
